Sali Hughes rec­om­mends prod­ucts that im­prove melasma

By Week­end’s All Ages model Dewi Rees, 29

My hair is al­ways a mess. I get it cut ev­ery few months and rely on hair prod­ucts to tame the mess be­tween cuts, so it passes as some kind of s style. It’s not par­tic­u­larly short, so I need some­thing with a de­cent hold.

My first im­pres­sion of the

Su­per­drug Styling Putty (£1.99, 75ml, su­per­drug.com) was that it was quite oily and had a strong but not un­pleas­ant smell. Af­ter be­ing ap­plied to wet hair it seemed to mould eas­ily but gave lit­tle ac­tual hold. It dried quite quickly and gave a sep­a­rated kind of tex­ture, which is isn’t re­ally what I’m af­ter.

The Mur­dock Matt Putty (£14, 1 100ml, mur­dock­lon­don.com) had a grainy tex­ture that was prefer­able to Su­per­drug’s of­fer­ing, and a nicer smell. It gave a firm hold, but it wasn wasn’t t firm fi enough for me. The tex­ture w was good and it was easy to re­shape through­out the day, but this is prob­a­bly probab bet­ter for peo­ple with hair that’s that shorter than mine.

Althou Al­though the smell and tex­ture of the Pa Paul Mitchell Flex­i­ble Style Lab Elas­tic Elas Shap­ing Paste (£17.25, 50ml, fee feelunique.com) re­minded me of PVA PV glue from school, I liked ev­ery­thi ev­ery­thing else about it. It gave a strong hold that could be re­worked if needed, needed the tex­ture was nice and it had a b bit of shine.

Bumbl Bum­ble and bum­ble’s Su­moTech (£23, 50m 50ml, bum­ble­and­bum­ble. co.uk) w was my favourite. It gave a great h hold and the tex­ture was sim­i­lar to us­ing a wax to­gether with a paste, w which is my usual rou­tine. It had a sub­tle, sub nat­u­ral smell. This will be my new ne go-to, but I’d use it with the Paul Mitchell if I needed ex­tra hold or s shine.
